The beloved brother trio have a strong working relationship and plain-old friendly relationship with "Weird Al." Al directed the band's "River" music video and played tambourine in their "Thinking 'Bout Somethin'" vid.

Middle bro Taylor spoke about their bromance in 2011. "I feel like so many people have so much respect for him," he said. "He’s a genius. We became friends after he started a family. His daughter is my oldest son's almost exact age. We've just been friends for the last 10 years or so. Periodically he'll come to our shows—he sat in for us the last time we were in LA."
